Anyone Have Similar Numbers



Recommended Posts

I am doing all the required seminars, nutrition classes but have on hold the gallbladder ultrasound, sleep apnea test, psych test, endoscopy until I get approval (fingers crossed) from United. 233 lbs , bmi 39.4, one existing comorbidity, 46 years old. Anyone in the same boat?

That's encouraging that you were approved w/ similar #'s. hopefully my file will be submitted tomorrow. I have supplied all my weights for the past 5 years and are all in the range of plus or minus 10 lbs. It is all I can think about.

I was quoted an estimate of $20k -- that is not an option I hope for :-(

12,500 total here in Texas... 4500 in Mexico and lots of people on this board have gone South for theirs

46 Years Old. 238 starting weight; two co-morbidities (PCOS & High BP). I had to lose 20 lbs before surgery and use a cpap for two months before surgery. My insurance paid for it except for $1,000 co-pay.

I am 229, age 52. Just finished all my reqirement, meetings and appointments today. It should be submitted to my insurance (bcbl of il) soon. I also am hoping for a positive. Good luck! I have hypertension, high cholesterol and reflux....hoping that is enough since my bmi is 37.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
